JUCO Transfer LaColtan Bester Ruled Academically Eligible

WR LaColtan Bester ruled academically eligible at OU: LaColtan Bester, who signed with the Sooners in May from East Mississippi Community College, has graduated, is academically eligible and will “have an immediate impact,” said Buddy Stephens, East Mississippi's coach.

“He was working out with us, running, lifting, catching balls and going to class,” Stephens said of Bester's 2012 summer. “He really hunkered down on his classes. The University of Oklahoma was in contact with our athletic academic advisors daily, many times a day.

“Oklahoma did their job, we did our job and Colt did his.”

Monday, OU coach Bob Stoops said he thought Bester had completed his required class work, but that he was waiting for final NCAA clearance.

Stephens said Bester left for Norman on Saturday and was “good to go.” (The Oklahoman)
